The Sound of Science

Would you like to record a podcast, a debate, or a voiceover? The Library can help! While we do not have a studio room, the Library now offers a mobile audio studio set you can borrow

What’s in the set?

  • 4 SM58 microphones
  • Xenyx Q1204USB mixer
  • 4-way headphone amplifier
  • Zoom H5 field recorder
  • Cables and microphone stands

We can also provide you with a free renewable 6-month student license for Hindenburg Journalist Pro, the easiest professional audio editor we could find. This software is available for Mac and PC, and allows you to edit multiple tracks. It automatically adjusts levels for different sources and lets you record Skype interviews. It also includes an automated podcast publication system.
